Microsoft has released the firmware update to its popular wearable Microsoft Band last week. We had already discussed about the main feature newly introduced in the update, that is golf based updates for Microsoft Health app. Along with it Microsoft managed to sneak in a small but amazing feature as well that is support for emoticons.

Prior to this update any text messages that are received by the Microsoft Band owners doesn’t display any emoticons if the text message contains it. However we doesn’t recognized this small update, some of our readers informed that since the latest firmware update, Microsoft Band now renders those emoticons onto the display.

This addition tells that Microsoft continues to include some features in its firmware updates which it doesn’t mention in the official changelog.  You can check the complete details of the Band’s firmware update including the golf tracking support from here.
